Christian Science Testimony

         Christian Science found me about eleven years ago in the darkest hour of my life. For four years I had struggled with sorrow and the dread disease tuberculosis. I had lost all faith in the God of my childhood and could not see a ray of light anywhere.

         In this condition I came to Colorado Springs to visit a friend. Upon my arrival here I learned that she had found a new religion which taught that God heals not only sin but sickness and sorrow.

         She did not offer me her religion but lived it so thoroughly and earnestly that in a very few days I began to investigate for myself by reading that wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

         I did not have to read far until I saw that I had found the truth for which I had searched so long. I soon forgot my physical ailments in my earnest study of the truth. Day by day my loving friend and I searched the Scriptures and Science and Health, talking a new language and living a new life all of that long, beautiful summer.

         At the end of two months of such companionship I found myself perfectly well and happier than I had ever been before. I had hardly realized the presence of a body for weeks.

         Since that time Christian Science has been my only physician, having met my every need, whether physical, financial, or spiritual. To say that I am grateful to God, to Mrs. Eddy who has given so much to mankind, and to my friend who so lovingly showed me the way, is putting it very mildly.
